Gently

Written by Dallas Green and Alecia Moore


No I wouldn’t mind going gently into the night
As long as it don’t hurt
I won’t put up a fight
To go beyond the time where my hands and voice aren’t sold
To a world so overgrown
It’s moving so fast that we should slow down
But as the shadows from the trees
Dance on the windowpane
Here I lie awake once again
Longing for a dream that may never come until I’m done
But I wouldn’t mind
No I wouldn’t mind
I can see it with my own two eyes
That I wouldn’t mind
And I don’t care if I vanish into thin air
As long as there ain’t pain
I won’t leave you that burden to bear
To live on the other side so reckless and free to roam
With no fear of the unknown
But I’m moving so fast I should slow down
But as the shadows from the trees
Dance on the windowpane
Here I lie awake once again
Longing for a dream that may never come until I’m done
But I wouldn’t mind
No I wouldn’t mind
I wouldn’t mind
I can see it with my own two eyes
That I wouldn’t mind
If time is life’s great healer
It’s a bandit in disguise
Stealing all your memories as each year passes by
It’s the same old story just told on a different day
Another lonesome journey down a dark highway
But I wouldn’t mind
No I wouldn’t mind
I can see it with my own two eyes
That I wouldn’t mind
I wouldn’t mind
